During the combat phase if two or three units are in combat with a single unit, will all units involved have a combat roll? Does the single defending unit facing multiple opponents in contact, have to roll once for each enemy or just once?

Maybe. Maybe not. The Combat Resolution is sequential, so if the first resolution beats the single Unit, the others will no longer be in contact and will not roll. If the first Unit is beaten back and the single Unit stands, then the second Unit will roll… etc…

Individually, sequentially, as per above. So the number of resolutions could vary from 1 to 3 or even more if there are ties or breakthroughs.

Understood, and the single unit would also have the -1 opposing multiple units as well.

Yes, so long as it is in contact with multiple Units, i.e. if the single Unit wins against the first two, it would not suffer that penalty against the 3rd because now it is only in contact with one enemy Unit.
